Nano-materials and devices

Nano-materials and Devices Group

The Nano-materials and Devices group, led by Professor William S. Wong, is focused on innovative solutions to enable high-performance and low-cost flexible electronics.

The group is investigating heterogeneous integration of silicon nanowires with a-Si:H thin-film devices onto plastic substrates to create novel high-performance flexible electronic systems that increase functionality for displays, image sensors, and energy generation and storage applications.

The group uses the capabilities of Giga-to-Nanoelectronics (G2N) to synthesize silicon nanowire materials, process thin-film devices and develop novel nanowire/thin-film hybrid devices through printed electronics and pulsed-laser processing.

The goal of the research is to develop novel processes and materials that will improve system performance and reduce fabrication costs.
